Logansport Gate, Culver Academies

Font size
This is Parents Weekend at Culver Academies, and our little town is bustling with visitors. To accommodate them, we will open our gallery earlier and stay open a little longer.

Logansport Gate, shown here, is the latest of the 18 prints that make up our "Academy Series". In another blog, I'll tell you the story behind Logansport Gate. And soon - like next week -Ward and I will be taking photos and deciding what new Culver scene will be our 19th Culver print.

I especially enjoy it when some of the CGA (Culver Girls Academy) and the CMA (Culver Military Academy -male) students, come into our shop to browse. They remind me of my own grandchildren. They are poised and well mannered - and we enjoy their visits whether or not they buy anything.

Studio update: We have just had most of the windows replaced in our 1920's bungalow. The studio windows have been stained and by tomorrow evening, I'll be able to rearrange the contents of my studio. In our next blog, we will have details on size and price of our new Culver Depot print.


Visit our web site: for details on this blog's feature - Logansport Gate, and many other prints. We've created a wide variety of subject matter - florals, barns, lighthouses, boats, Plymouth and Culver town and area views, children's prints, churches, Christmas scenes and more. We offer boxed note cards using some of our print images. We hope to preserve cherished memories, feelings and moods with Ward's pen and my brush. The full selection of Painter and Poet prints is available only through our own web site and our own Painter and Poet Gallery, located here in Culver.
